I just finished watching Marketplace, it's a consumer show for those of you not in Canada, and there was a segment on the chemical Triclosan which is what makes products antibacterial...anyhow apparently it makes its way into br___tmilk and scientists in Sweden are not quite sure what it's impact is on the human body and the environment but are thinking it's not good. It's also making its way into the food chain. They even put it in toothpaste!!!!

The over use of antibacterial chemicals has lead me to have a chronic skin yeast infection (not as gross as it sounds..trust me...but it still sux) my poor dd looks like she got it from me :(

i never used it because my doc said thats its not healthy to NOT be exposed to germs because it actually lowers your immune system.

Yeah, being exposed to germs actually gives your immune system "exercise", Therefore making it stronger!

I'm an actibacterial junkie!!! I mainly use it when out in publice after touching stuff like the shopping cart handle or after using the restroom (and yes I wash my hands in there too). We use wipes on the baby to clean his hands after being out in public and my older son uses the antibacterial gel after being out in public. Keeps us pretty darn healthy.

Did you hear about those people in Boston that DRANK the stuff???? They became intoxicated, dangerously intoxicated because they drank tons of hand sanitizer. So now the government is having the labels changed to say Do Not Ingest. Some people are NUTS!
